This year, Sony are bringing back the Days of Play promotion, which was a huge success last year. The promotional event will see a number of deals available for PlayStation hardware, accessories and videogames.
Loosely tying in to the week of E3, the promotion will see discounts on hardware, peripherals and some selected videogames over the period of 8th-18th June, 2018. Interestingly, PlayStation users in the EU region get an exclusive competition not available in other regions.
Sony will be introducing a special limited edition PlayStation 4 system from 8th June, which is a ‘Days of Play’ blue, with a gold PlayStation smybol design on the side. The two DualShock 4 controllers that come with the console are also blue, with a gold PlayStation symbol pattern across the touchpad surface. The special Limited Edition console comes with a 1TB hard drive and will be priced at $299.99 (USD)/€299.99 (EUR).
PlayStation VR bundles will also be available at a discounted price of $199.99/€249.99, with the EU version coming with additional software. To make sure you are fully equipped for VR action, the PlayStation Move controllers are also discounted to $79.99, along with a PlayStation VR Aim controller for $49.99, the latter of which is only available on the US.
Software is also getting a discount, with several VR-compatible titles getting prices slashed as part of the promotion:
